Cleopatra


Published 1912


Cleopatra is a silent film created in 1912 by Helen Gardner and the Helen Gardner Picture Players. The film, in which Gardner stars in the title role, was based on a play written by Victorien Sardou.

In a series of elaborately staged tableaux, it depicts Cleopatra (Gardner) and her love affairs, first with handsome fisherman-slave Pharon, then with Marc Antony.

The film features lavish sets and costumes and at just over an hour, it was considered fairly lengthy.

This film looks really good for being so old. I admit it seems long but there isn't much dialogue
offered for so much action, you have to fill in the blanks with your own personal knowledge of the story. It would be really great to have some dialogue dubbed in, a future project?

6 star movie. We should consider ourself lucky this survives.We should not expect more from a 1912 presentation. I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

This early silent shows the static camera techniques and broad gestures so prevalent when movie making was dominated by stage acting methods. This movie is also very slow ... so slow I could only watch 26 minutes of it.
